Tailored Engineering Solutions for Your Construction Needs

Our engineering team includes degreed mechanical engineers with over 50 years of combined experience. Our work spans nearly all market segments with notable MEP experience leading healthcare, process/industrial, higher education, central utility plant, historical renovation, pharmaceutical and specialty design-build projects.

Our engineers apply their expertise during all phases of a project. Early involvement allows for advanced planning and greater positive impact on project schedule, constructability, prefabrication, safety, cost and quality.         

This is essential for all design-assist, design-build and integrated project delivery (IPD) work. Continued involvement through the installation and commissioning phase of projects allows our engineers to ensure all design intent and quality standards are achieved.

Coordination Management

At Grote Enterprises, we believe that the key to every coordination project is to work through the challenges while preventing construction delays.

We have an experienced team who leads and manages the entire coordination process, including:

  • Preparing models prior to meetings and running clash detection reports
  • Navigating through the model and identifying clashes for the different trades to work out
  • Taking snap shots of clashing and documenting the resolution

Our innovation-based philosophy helps maintain long-term partnerships. We work with every client to deliver the schedule, cost, quality and safety necessary for every project.
